the Darkness 'will' not 'grasp at' the Truth of the Light

Seeing we are on the verge of entering chapter 3 - in preveiw:

Joh 3:18 "The one believing [or, trusting] in Him is not judged, but the one not believing already has been judged, because he has not believed in the Name of the only-begotten [or, unique] Son of God.
Joh 3:19 "Now this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their works were evil.
Joh 3:20 "For every [one] practicing wicked [things] hates the Light and does not come towards the Light, so that his works shall not be exposed.

Joh 3:36 "The one believing [or, trusting] in the Son has eternal life, but the one refusing to believe the Son will not see {the} life, _but_ the wrath of God abides on him." [ALT]

As 'predicted' in 1:5 those in Darkness, who practice evil, 'love' the Darkness but 'hate' the Light as a result they vehemently 'refuse to believe' the Son and are already condemned to their fate.

Gal 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"
